The June solstice is known as the summer solstice in the northern hemisphere and the winter solstice the southern hemisphere. The date varies between June 20 and June 22, depending on the year.

 

Joyous celebrations are held on the Summer Solstice , the longest day of the year and eve of the first day of Summer and in some cultures, wooden wheels are set on fire at sunset and rolled down hills to represent the sun.

At Summer Solstice we give tribute for abundance, power, and possibilities.  The warmth of the earth and the growth of crops.

Bonfires are lit in many areas on Summer Solstice, and sacred herbs such as mugwart and vervain are tossed into the flames.  Rings of summer flowers are worn on the heads of the women and children and the community comes together for laughter and celebration.

Many cultures hold sacred rituals to mark this astronomical and earthly event.  In ancient times many of these took place inside stone circles such as Stonehenge, that were aligned with solstices and equinoxes for more power.

On this Summer Solstice take some time away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life to celebrate the earths beauty and bounty.  And to enjoy the Suns golden light that nourishes all things.

Make flower wreaths like chaining daisies as a child and wear them in your hair or around your neck.  Visit a body of water or the woods and enjoy the wonder of nature.

Enjoy a wonderful glass of fresh water, ice tea or a nice libation of Summer Sangria!!!

Give Thanks and enjoy life!!

 

Summer Sangria

Ingredients

  • 6 cups Chardonnay or Sauvignon Blanc
  • 1/4 cup superfine sugar
  • 1 cup white grape juice
  • 1 ripe nectarine, pitted and cut into thin wedges
  • 1 tangerine, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup seedless white grapes, halved
  • 1 cup club soda

Preparation

  1. In a large pitcher or other container, combine the wine and sugar and stir until the sugar dissolves. Add the remaining ingredients, excluding the club soda, and mix well. Place the pitcher in the refrigerator and let the sangria sit for at least 1 hour (and up to 4 hours). The sangria will sweeten with time, so the longer it sits, the better. Just before serving, stir in the club soda and ice cubes

Or make one of you own, best with the summer fruit with pits and perhaps a bit of ginger or some fun herbs.

 

FULL MOON release fears candle work

FULL MOON  release fears 
 
The day after the Full Moon puts the universe into a “release” cycle of the moon.  Waning, going away, letting go.
 
Sometime we are just stuck in a rut and afraid of change.  This energy shifting of the candles is perfect for removing those negative thoughts.
 
 
The fear of not moving forward, the fear of rejection,  the fear of not having  (this can sometimes block our having) be it a person, place or thing.
and of course , the fear of change.
Remember this is energy shifting.  A burning candle gives you something on which to focus, a reminder that you are letting go.  This is to be done for you, not others.  It may be there Karmic path to face their fears and deal with them accordingly.
.
This is a very simple 2 candle spell to do the day after the Full Moon
 
 
 

On a piece of paper write down what it is you are releasing.  The fear of not having enough of something, not being good enough,smart enough, strong enough.  All this can block all our efforts.  If you do  not know  what your fear is — simply leave it blank and the universe will fill it in for you.

To Remove fear

One red candle

one white candle

On the first day after the Full Moon, Light the red and then the white giving up all your fear and anxiety to the higher power in your life.  Let it burn till done.

I use the glass jar candles that burn for about 7 days.  These are usually found in grocery, drug stores and the .99 store.  They sometime have saints on them.  I place mine on a cookie sheet, pie tin or candle holder in case of cracking as it gets lower and hotter.

___________

When you use Candle Magick, you are causing changes in the universe.  While there are constructive and destructive changes you can initiate (notice I did not say good and bad).  Universal energies are neutral!   They are not “good” or “evil” as in the movies.

Example-constructive to bring something as opposed to destructive, destroying fear

Keep your intent clear, work on yourself, and do not interfere with others

Candles can be used in a very positive and powerful way to set off a vibration in the universe

(see explanation of how they work under the subject Candle work)

Have a Fabulous Day!

Soulmates, a reflection

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAimages

 

In a relationship, as in everything else, we get what we believe and ask for.  Actually what we feel we deserve!!

People in a relationship, be it soulmates, love relationship or friendship are always mirrors of each other in some way.

A relationship with another person is one of the most powerful tools we have for growth if we look at them realistically to see how

we have created them.

 

If you truly desire to have a deep fulfilling relationship, You have to believe it is possible.  You have to believe you deserve it, them and love.  And you have to treat you the way you want to be treated.  Be the best you, you can be.  (realize it is not that you do not deserve love but perhaps, this person is not reflecting the best you).

Below are some things you can do to help your relationship:

 

1. Look at your goals, physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually

2. Take an honest (key word) look at what beliefs and attitudes you have about what is blocking YOU from having a deep relationship.  Write it down–the reason I can’t have a deep relationship or friendship with _______ is—–no no not what they do, what you do.

3. Use affirmations and visual images to change the “scene” into a positive, loving one,  Be willing to accept the good in you.

4. Use visualization to improve a difficult situation.  Talking together, taking turns listening.

If we put ourselves or our prospective partner in a box with a label with the way it should be, it can be very confining and limiting.

Human relationships are very complex.  They reflect our inner workings to help us to grow, it is not the partners job to heal or fix, only to reflect.

If  the relationship difficulties continue, it is a sign to look deeper into ourselves.

 

Sometime Insight from an outside person can help you to gain some clarity.

 

Remember  SOULMATES ARE MADE, NOT FOUND

Even if you feel you have found them, the relationship must be made.

Perhaps You are the soulmate you are looking for.

 

You deserve all there is, accept it

 

 

 

Psychic insight into Love, relationships to empower you to be the best YOU, can be

 

Pathway to Prosperity #1

The Pathway to Prosperity 

Lesson one – Success And Happiness Are For You.


No man has a right, unless he can not help himself, to remain where he will be constantly subjected to the cramping, ambition-blocking influences and great temptations of poverty. His self-respect demands that he should get out of such an environment. It is his duty to put himself in a position of dignity and independence where he will not be liable at any moment to be a burden to his friends in case of sickness or other emergencies, or where those depending on him may suffer.

Prosperity begins in the mind and is impossible to achieve with a mental attitude which is hostile to it. We can not attract opulence mentally by a poverty-stricken attitude which is driving away what we long for. We must think prosperity before we can come to it.  What we have, not what we do not have.

Our circumstances in life, our financial condition, our poverty or our wealth, our friends or lack of them, our condition of harmony or discord, are all very largely the offspring of our thought.  And we have the power to change this.

Success comes through a perfectly scientific mental process. The man who becomes prosperous believes that he is going to be prosperous. He has faith in his ability to make money. He does not start out with his mind filled with doubts and fears, and all the time talk poverty and think poverty, walk like a pauper and dress like a pauper. He turns his face towards the thing he is trying for and is determined to get, and will not allow its opposite picture in his mind.

The man who expects prosperity is constantly creating money in his mind, building his financial structure mentally. There must be a mental picture of the prosperity first; the building around it is comparatively easy.

To be prosperous we must put ourselves in the prosperous attitude, in a bring mode. We must think as a prosperous being, we must feel opulent in thought; we must exhale confidence and assurance in our very bearing and manner. Our mental attitude towards the thing we are striving for and the intelligent effort we put forth to realize it, will measure our attainment.

The man who would succeed must think success, must think upward. He must think progressively, creatively, constructively, inventively, and  above all, optimistically.

The mental attitude which we hold toward our work or our aim has everything to do with what we accomplish.

Many positive minds become negative by influences which destroy their self-confidence. They gradually lose faith in themselves.

The whole philosophy of efficiency and happiness consist in the vigorous, consistent affirmation of the thing we are trying to be, and trying to do.

Affirmation

 

 

 

Abundance is my true state of being

 

I am now ready to accept it fully and joyously

 

 

 

I am now ready to accept all the joy and prosperity

 

life has to offer
